Laxminarayan Style Chiwda

Updated: Sep 7


Laxminarayan Chiwda is a famous Punekars snack mix with various ingredients such as fried poha, peanuts, cashews, almonds and raisins and flavoured with salt and a blend of spices. I wanted to try this chiwda for long time and finely tried it last evening and the taste was awesome just like laxminarayan Chiwda.
